Poppies for Poppy

 

Poppies are the colour red

From The Great War it is said

It became known as World War One

When the second war came along

 

Poppies droop like they are sad

About the countries that were mad

lots of people died from wars

mostly for a crazy cause

 

My Poppy is my daddy’s dad

And around this time he too, gets sad

We march the streets 11th November

and for all the fallen, we remember.
